Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

I know I know its not fall but 2 weeks ago I just had MAJOR cravings for a butternut squash soup. I’ve probably made this a couple of times trying different recipes I’ve found through Pinterest. This time I tried a vegan/gluten free and paleo friendly version and you know what it was just as good. In fact I probably will stick to this version all the time now and cut out the cream.

The pictures might not do it justice but the important part is the taste and yums! is all I have to say. I got this recipe from Ahead of Thyme. I did modify it a little here and there but nothing major.

Blended soup in pot (I left it a wee bit chunky) and all portioned up for meals on the go.

So if you are a fan of this soup head over to Ahead of Thyme and get the recipe. I LOVE it! Laterz..

Day 1 & 2

Hi! So as I mentioned in an earlier post I was going to start the Green Thickie 7 day diet plan by Katherine Kyle at Green Thickies. Day 1 and day 2 are in the bag and I must say it has not been as difficult as I though it might be. I did get a bit hungry before dinner on day 1 and SP offered me pork chops and corn for dinner. Proud to say I turned it down in favour of keeping up with my resolution.

I will post some pictures of what I had but won’t be providing any recipes as it’s copyrighted and I paid for it etc. But you will get the gist of what I’m feeding my body. For mid afternoon snacks it’s some nuts and a small fruit but what you see here is pretty much all I ate otherwise. I did find eating my full dinner a little difficult as the portion was big for me but I gobbled it down as it’s mostly veggies. It keeps me satiated and satisfied and I’m able to turn down sweets and desserts. FYI it takes me a while to finish my smoothie as it’s so filling.

For Day 1 I had the same salad with a sweet potato. I am suppose to have a salad with my dinner but I just could not stomach it I was too full.

Lunch stays the same all week unless I swap it out for a smoothie. Sweet Grapefruit & Orange smoothie & Satay Noodles with Veg

So far so good. Though I found out I am not a big fan of citrus smoothies when I have mylk or any extra goodies (oats, seeds, nuts etc.) mixed in. I prefer my citrus smoothies with water and berries.

Will be back with more updates!  Laterz..
